Small nursery with big style!

Small nursery

Hej! How are you? Yesterday I booked a short trip to our last destination and could not resist to share this sweet family space from Sweden. With a small nursery that has the perfect mix of design and cosy.

And stepping in through the door of this home means being met by the famous Scnadinavian light and space. The apartment is located on the corner of a beautiful classic house and has nice windows and a balcony with a magnificent view of the city. I love the open generous living area, high ceilings, oak parquet, and original features.

Situated close to the Södermalm neighbourhood in Stockholm, the area is very family-friendly. It is quite but you also find lots of shops, restaurants, cafes and city links via metro and bus.

Come in:

Such a cute and warm room. It is a small nursery, but there is space for everything including some sweet accessories.

I am sure you noticed these beautiful crochet fruits and vegetables. Not only do they look adorable but they are perfect for role play too.

Of course I went out and did some research and found a great Etsy shop* selling them in fun sets.

The rest of the house is just as charming and with the same eclectic mix of old and new.

Would you love to see another Stockholm house? How about Jasmina Bylund’s spectacular place?

Blush children’s rooms in this scenic Stockholm apartment

Blush children's room

Welcome to another episode of Interior Tuesday and today we will do some island hopping. City island! If you have ever been to Stockholm, I am sure you remember the amazing archipelago and today’s apartment has stunning views over said archipelago.

This beautiful family apartment is located in one of the older houses on popular Kvarnholmen, an island east of Stockholm, Sweden. Kvarnholmen used to be completely separate, but a permanent land-bridge now connects it to the rest of the city. Here you live on the border between the city and the archipelago and you never have more than a few hundred meters to the water, and many green areas. And next to the magnificent views of Stockholm’s beautiful archipelago, you will discover two very lovely children’s room, decorated with love and lots of blush tones.

Furthermore, the apartment comes with so many unique and well-preserved details, and a spacious living room with fireplace. Let’s have a look:

This looks like a very cute haven for a little girl, doesn’t it? Really loving the fairy lights in the canopy and the little kitchen from Maileg.

Of course, the boy’s room is equally inviting and full of little details and accessories to make it a warm and welcoming place!

The apartment is situated on the sixth floor and with the open air plan it is so airy – practical, I think, when you have a family.

And (!!!) on the eleventh floor you can find a shared roof terrace, with outstanding views, as well as a connecting common room with kitchen and toilet, sauna and a relaxation area. Wow!

Another cool thing, from here you can actually hop on one of the shuttle boats and they will take you straight to Nybrokajen. The city center of Stockholm in a quarter of an hour.

Altogether – the total Stockholm experience!

A colourful dream family home in Australia

A colourful dream family home in Australia
Bonjour, how are you? I am working on a bigger ‘thing’ that I am hoping to launch by the end of this year. And that is why I sometimes take a day off from blogging. Like yesterday. First I wanted to start writing but could not decide about what…

So I turned to my project and decided to use the ‘article writing time’ there instead. I know it all sounds a bit ‘maaaahhh’, but trust me – it will be fun, useful, and awesometastic. (my latest favourite word that I just use all the time, especially with the kids… and if not that, it is fantastico… don’t ask!)

But today we will not skip Interior Tuesday. And we will not visit Scandinavia but travel all around the world. To Australia, the Bellarine Peninsula, off Australia’s Victorian Coast to be very precise.

Hayley Pannekoecke and husband James built and designed the home of their dreams here. Hayley is the co-founder of Kip&Co  and, of course, it is as colourful as you would imagine. The couple is sharing this enchanting home with their children Chloe, Faye, and Floyd.

Let’s have a closer look and discover some unexpected colour pairings, one crazy attic loft, an outdoor pool, and beautiful oak parquetry floors:

Loving this big family kitchen and I would love to cook in here. That giant skylight is such a great idea…

And there is more: A cool velvet sofa, lots of concrete, teal walls, and fun kids paintings that make the perfect decoration!

And then there is this pink room! Fresh, with an en-suite, and some cool accessories!

The bunk bed room. I guess that when you have a lot of space you just build a huge bunk bed that serves sleepovers and slumber parties. Or family visits and the possibility to change beds every other night…

And then this. The white loft. It is somehow funny and definitely unexpected. All the way up in the attic – a blank space.

In the mood for more Australia? How about these 5 rooms or 2 contemporary kids rooms?

Stick and Peel – the best self adhesive wallpapers for the kids room!

best self adhesive wallpapers kids room

We already know that wallpapers are back and it looks like they are going to stay. Perfect, because the designs of today are fantastic and can transform any interior into a stunning space.

One step further and much easier is self-adhesive wallpaper. Stick and Peel wallpaper is made with a proprietary adhesive that is specifically engineered for quick application and removal. And therefore can update walls in just a few minutes. So much faster, easier, and cleaner than dealing with paste. They totally take the effort out of wallpapering.

Furthermore, self-adhesive wallpaper is completely removable and reusable.

So your dreams of making a big impression in your home or just a corner or an accent wall, are very close. Plus the designs are just as stunning as the ‘real thing’. And your child’s room is one of the best spaces to try some colour, fun decor and maybe a bold wallpaper. Self-adhesive wallpapers are easy to put and to take down and often they are waterproof and washable as well. Win-win!

So, I went out and had a look to find the best and most interesting self-adhesive wallpapers for the kid’s room:

The colours in this shop* are more subtle. You can find lots of pastel, blush, and powder tones.

I hope you liked the selection of the best self-adhesive wallpapers for the kid’s room. There are a few helpful things to know as well:

Every shop gives you the possibility to order samples so that you can see the print and colours in your home and get a better feeling. Also, most shops are happy to do the wallpaper or wall mural in the exact size that you need.

And one more thing – try and think a bit outside the box. Wallpapers, especially removable, are great for lots of things. You can use them for dollhouses for example, or to decorate an old piece of furniture.

Happy decorating!

Stylish and cosy nursery in subtle shades of grey

grey nursery

Hello! Bonjour! Ciao! I think this week has me back in my routine and back with an Interior Tuesday and I am planning very much to do another article for the Genuine Friday series.

And for today’s pretty apartment we are traveling to Gothenburg in Sweden and have a peek in the area of Linnéstaden. The neighbourhood is very central and yet known for its small shops, galleries, cafes, and restaurants.

So, in the middle of Linnéstaden you can find this beautiful, completely renovated apartment that is definitely not just an ordinary place. All details from the past were preserved in the form of stucco, wooden floors, cast iron elements, and stunning doors for example.

And it includes a lovely grey nursery that makes you swoon as well!

Therefore, we will have a look around, especially at the nursery, and you will understand what I am talking about:

 

grey nursery
This is a very bright room with lovely high ceilings and the clean Scandinavian look we love so much.

Get the look: The grey canopy* matches perfectly with the walls. And the crib bumper* enhances the whole look too.  A cool ride-on car* to race around the house, a stylish rug * (this one is washable!).

Sofa in the kids room? Perfect for feeding, story time and for the child to relax. And what those snuggly blankets and cushions, it looks all very cosy to me!

Get the look: Dusty pink muslin blanket* (various sizes available), white cotton ball lights*, and of course a natural storage basket* for all the tiny bits.

 

grey nursery
Get the look: Red play kitchen* and black pushcart*.

A few images from the rest of this stunning family space and I am sure you agree. The colour in the bedroom is a stunner. And of course, no Swedish home without a String shelf system.
